I would say that the time of year has come again to ask for your support, but I have never before requested any donations. What I have done for years is down to my undying love and appreciation of classic radio, but this lately has become an expensive and time consuming hobby to say the least. The operating costs alone for 2011 were as follows:
1. Streaming Host – $600
2. Internet connectivity – $450
3. Utility Costs – $100
On-top of the above, I invested another $500 in hardware, so during the last 12 months I financed Pumpkin FM to the tune of $1,650 (£1,000).
With listener numbers increasing, I have also had to invest more money to increase the streaming server capacity and envisage the requirement to do the same again soon. I understand many of you out there like myself are living the global recession, but would like to ask that those of you who could spare a little and enjoy the programming consider making a small donation to the cause. You can donate simply and safely via PayPal by clicking the donate button above or below.
Thank you in advance and happy listening
